Meet the Winner of the FIDM Facebook Graphic Design Challenge, Jon Ezell

Meet the winner of the FIDM Facebook Graphic Design Challenge, Jon Ezell, whose eye-catching graphic design is currently featured as the cover image on FIDM’s Facebook page.

Jon is a fourth quarter Graphic Design/Branding Student at FIDM’s Orange County campus.

Jon’s design was selected as a top finalist in the FIDM Facebook Graphic Design Challenge by a panel of judges, and then as elected winner by public vote on FIDM’s Facebook page. Inspired by photographer Alberto Seveso’s abstract photography, Jon decided to put his own spin on the same concept by incorporating an abstract image that simulates how food coloring looks when dropped in water for his graphic design.

“I was trying to think of one word that would describe FIDM,” he says. “The best word I could think of was ‘creativity.’”

Jon’s graphic design will be featured as the FIDM Facebook cover image during select dates in June.

In addition to earning his graphic design degree at FIDM, Jon also designs T-Shirt graphics for his own fashion line, Adamo Collection. Although he had some design experience prior to attending FIDM, Jon says wanted to come to college to learn formal design techniques.

FIDM Graphic Design Student/FIDM Facebook Graphic Design Challenge Winner, Jon Ezell“The main thing I lacked before [attending] FIDM was the knowledge of the basic design rules and principles, as well as the proper training that distinguishes a designer from just an average person who knows how to use the creative suite,” he says.

Jon’s interest in design goes beyond graphics and fashion, though. He hopes, one day, to venture into product development creating modern furniture, or even car design.

“Those are my big dreams,” says Jon (shown, right). “I think nothing is impossible once you put your mind to it.”

“My favorite part of the Graphic Design program through FIDM is that your teachers are working professionals,” he says. “I love the fact that they speak through their personal experiences and current knowledge of the industry rather then teaching you something they read in a book.”
